Our

Story

15 years ago, CEO of the Future Fish group, Koen Vermunt, started Open Seas BV, working alongside a group of people with experience in importing fresh fish into Europe.

Soon, Koen started to see the potential of the seafood business and when Sebastian Bullita joined the company in 2005, Open Seas continued on as a successful, international player in the fresh seafood industry.

Koen and Sebastian, both partners and owners of Open Seas, had a clear mission:

Selecting the most reliable and exclusive suppliers around the world, to provide clients with daily fresh, high-quality fish. Achieving this goal by being proactive, transparent and loyal towards the entire line of business. Creating sustainable relationships with continuous growth. And finally, as the key to the ultimate success: being beneficial for everyone involved.

Our

Promise

Today, the Open Seas team is still expanding and they continue to believe in the same mission. The Open Seas team is available 24/7 to advice clients on daily fresh fish arrivals and to provide them with products that are required. They are also on hand to offer suggestions of new, exquisite ranges of products. 

Open Seas is part of the Future Fish group, created by Koen Vermunt.  Throughout the past 15 years in the industry, Koen has always tried to serve clients from various markets. He has done so by not solely offering fresh fish, through Open Seas, but also by offering frozen fish, through sister company Amacore Seafood. And by creating products and processing fish at Fish works in Spakenburg. This way we are able to serve the entire market, never leaving anyone out.
